Conduct an Awareness Raising Workshop targeting Women Who Use Drugs in Egypt

MENA Rosa focuses on supporting and empowering women and girls living with or at risk of HIV, as well as their families and partners, through developing their leadership skills and promoting effective participation in raising awareness, advocacy, and networking.

MENA Rosa is currently based in Lebanon and has focal points in 11 countries in the MENA region, including Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Oman, Sudan, Tunisia, Yemen.

Women in the MENA Region face multiple challenges: they live in a patriarchal society where traditional gender roles are prevalent and clearly defined. Women from Key Populations, in particular Women Who Use Drugs (WWUD), encounter additional challenges: they face Stigma and Discrimination, less social support than their male counterparts and are usually rejected by their family. They are more likely to suffer violence from intimate partners, dealers or family members. 

Accordingly, under the GNP+ Love Alliance Project, MENA Rosa and through its Focal Points, wishes to organize a four-days awareness raising workshop targeting WWUD in Cairo - Egypt, to improve their knowledge about their health to make informed decisions and adopt non risky behaviors.

MENA Rosa is seeking to recruit a national facilitator to conduct the four-days’ workshop, during August 2024, in Cairo.

  • Coordinate with the local partner CSO in Egypt and MENA Rosa Focal Points,
  • develop an agenda (English and Arabic) for the awareness raising workshop targeting Women Who Use Drugs,
  • coordinate with the experts who will conduct thematic sessions such as HIV, Mental Health, etc.; and
  • implement the workshop in Cairo; and draft a report in English.


  • Agenda of the four-days’ workshop,
  • pre and post evaluation tests; and
  • report of the workshop.

The methodology to be adapted in this training should incorporate a combination of interactive sessions, and presentations fostering a participatory learning environment.  

Profile and Qualifications:

  • Very knowledgeable in substance use, harm reduction and HIV.
  • Well-informed of the national context with previous experiences working in Egypt.
